The Erewash Community Safety Partnership’s plans for 2014-2017 have been set out as Erewash Borough Council continues to make Ilkeston and surrounding safer place to live.

Four key priorities identified by council executives are, anti-social behaviour, alcohol related harm, domestic abuse and acquisitive crime and re-offending.

The Erewash Community Safety Partnership continues to tackle crime and disorder, with data showing that complete crime in Erewash has reduced since December 2011.

Cllr Carol Hart, deputy leader and lead member for community engagement at EBC, said: “This plan sets out the priorities that our local communities and partners have identified as being most important, which will help us to achieve our vision.

“The organisations within Erewash Community Safety Partnership are wholly committed to continuing to reduce crime and disorder across the borough and by working together, improve neighbourhoods to make Erewash even safer.”

The new Plan will be published on 1 April 2014.
